Hillary Briefly Leaves the Hospital

The secretary has left the building—but only briefly. Hillary Clinton left New York–Presbyterian Hospital on Wednesday afternoon for testing, only to return an hour later. Even so, her short departure, with Bill and Chelsea by her side, was welcome evidence of her prognosis, which doctors say is excellent. According to a State Department spokesperson, Clinton has been “quite active” during her stay, coordinating with aides via phone. It’s unclear when she will be officially discharged.
